    Valve body is different due to the lack of a kickdown cable.

    Looks familiar. While you're in there, might want to run a hose into the inside of the frame. I was surprised at how much crap came out just by rinsing. Took a while too.

    Harbor freight has an assorted wire wheel kit that works pretty well for reeming out the control arm holes. They work great in a drill. Shipping is usually pretty cheap from them since I doubt you have one around.

    I saw those today actually, but I got them fairly clean with some sand paper I found in the house.

    I thought long and hard about the color, and decided brown would show dirt less. The minute I pulled the trigger I started having buyers remorse and wish I had gone with black. Oh well, it is what it is and it doesn't stink.

    Took the biggest part of the weekend, it was tedious as all hell. As far as I'm concerned bathrooms and trucks should never have carpet in them.
